You may notice a few additions to our growing list of research databases this year. We’ll be highlighting each of these in more detail throughout the semester, but here is a quick summary of some of the new resources we’ve added since last Spring.

Archives of Human Sexuality and Identity presents aspects of LGBTQ life in the second half of the twentieth century and beyond. This collection contains material drawn from hundreds of institutions and organizations, including both major international activist organizations and local, grassroots groups.

Bibliography of Asian Studies is a comprehensive western-language resource for research on Asia that contains 900,000 records on all subjects (especially in the humanities and the social sciences) pertaining to the East, South East, and South Asia, published worldwide from 1971 to present.

Gale World Scholar: Latin America & the Caribbean serves the needs of students and researchers by bringing together in a single place a collection of primary source documents about Latin America and the Caribbean; academic journals and news feeds covering the region; reference articles and commentary; maps and statistics; audio and video; and more.

Nineteenth Century Collections Online is a multi-year global digitization and publishing program focusing on primary source collections of the nineteenth century, with archives releasing incrementally. It consists of monographs, newspapers, pamphlets, manuscripts, ephemera, maps, photographs, statistics, and other kinds of documents in both Western and non-Western languages. In this collection we have three archives available for scholars to peruse: Asia and the West: Diplomacy and Cultural Exchange; Religion, Society, Spirituality, and Reform; and Women: Transnational Networks.

Oxford Classical Dictionary provides continuously updated articles that reflect the interdisciplinary nature of Classics. Multimedia content includes interactive maps, audio, and images.

Thesaurus Linguae Graecae is a digital library of Greek literature. Organized as a research program at the University of California, Irvine, the TLG has collected and digitized most literary texts written in Greek from Homer to the fall of Byzantium in AD 1453.

Happy researching, Lions! As always, if you need help navigating these resources, please don’t hesitate to contact your librarian.
